You may be familiar with the term “healing vibes,” but what does it mean, exactly? Our world is composed of vibration, and everything holds a different frequency. Let’s explore healing frequencies for the human body. Through music and tones, we can utilize the science behind these phenomena of frequencies that heal to harmonize and further understand ourselves and the world around us.
Most of us are aware that the seemingly solid things around us are, in fact, primarily made up of space, not solid matter. Being as such, it’s not difficult to imagine how frequency can affect our bodies, minds, and atmospheres. Although we can’t see frequency with the naked eye or feel it with the skin, we can connect with it on a higher level. Regardless of whether or not we’re aware of them, tones have an influence over every aspect of our beings.
Sound healing has roots in Egyptian science (and likely predates it). More recently it was brought into the mainstream by biophysicist Gerald Oster. You can thank this man for publishing studies on what is now known as “binaural beats.” Yes – the very popular brainwave entrainment tones that many flock to for relaxation, deep sleep, and relief from physical and mental ailments. Binaural or not, sound therapy (aka acutonics) is being applied now more than ever before. Various branches of science and holistic medicine have offered proof of its effectiveness, as well as insight on specific frequencies to use for deeper healing.
Our hearts boast the most far-reaching electromagnetic field in the human body with waves reaching much farther than our brain waves. When we encounter another person, we often energetically connect at the heart level first. It’s safe to say that this may be why we tend to cross our arms over our chest or hunch our shoulders when we’re in uncomfortable or unfamiliar social situations. We are protecting the heart from the disharmonious frequencies around us.
Let’s break it down. Hz stands for Hertz, which are the cycles per second of vibration. Most modern music is set to 440 Hz, and that is theorized to be out of balance with our bodies, chakras, nature, and our very DNA. 432, on the other hand, hits the sweet spot and harmonizes with the patterns of the universe. Music that vibrates at 440 Hz seems to be more cerebral, and 432 Hz harmonizes the heart and restores balance. They are both frequencies that heal.
You may be wondering why 432 is valued over 440. After all, wouldn’t a higher number equal a higher vibration? The difference here is pitch. The higher the pitch, the higher the eardrum vibrates, and that makes 440 Hz more likely to put us in an anxious or disconnected state. In recent years, those who are aware of the importance of sound have taken matters into their own hands. It’s now possible to easily transform mainstream music into harmonious 432 tunes. Various computer programs and apps are capable of this, inspiring music lovers to amp up the quality of their music (no pun intended) for mental and physical benefits.
Some musicians have gone a step further, creating a high vibe, harmonious music straight out of the gate. Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi went so far as to express his concerns to the Congress of Italian Musicians. He urged them to approve 432 Hz as the standard. Verdi was one of many composers who stood behind the concept, but unfortunately, the revolution did not spread.
Like the aforementioned 432, 528 Hertz, is also nicknamed the “love frequency.” Like 432, this frequency resonates with the heart and is a component of sacred geometry. To understand the importance of the 528, we must first understand the Solfeggio scale and what it offers us on a healing level. These six tones are known as the “tones of creation” or even the “tones of God” due to their miraculous ability to facilitate healing and alter consciousness. Although each can be used a la mode, for a more holistic experience, you can listen to music that incorporates the entire scale. Many like to fall asleep to these healing tones. There are various hypnosis and meditation recordings online that explore these sounds and inspire deeper and more meaningful healing.
Each of the six tones on the scale – 396, 417, 528, 639, 741, 852 – fulfill a different type of purpose.
396 – heals feelings of grief
417 – helps with stagnation
639 – affects our connections with others
741 – inspires self-expression
852 – restores spiritual connection
The subject of our discussion – 528 – is known as a “miracle tone” that aids in DNA repair. Noticeable effects of it include peaceful feelings, a clear mind, heightened awareness and intuition, and the ability to find your purpose.
There have been some arguments in the new age communities about the effectiveness of both tones, pitting one of the frequencies that heal against the other. Neither is “better” than the other. It can be theorized that 432 relates to a more personal, human nature, with an emphasis on the heart field; while 528 brings us to a wider, deeper understanding of universal love.
Any tones that instill in us feelings of peace can be considered healing frequencies for the aura and brain. After all, each of us has our own musical preferences. The fact that we’ve discovered the gift of healing through specific and time-tested frequencies must be considered. It’s up to you to use these divine tones to heal, inspire, and reach your true potential.
